The light on Winston indicates its status:




  • Green means it is starting up, such as when you first plug it in or when it reboots (including after it receives an update)


  • Amber means that the WAN port is not receiving signal. Check your connection to your modem.

  • Pulsing Purple or no light after starting up means the unit is running normally.


  • Red means that a critical software service is down. Please contact Winston Privacy for assistance.
